If the receiving dom0 recognizes an over-allocation it must know how
much memory a domU is supposed to have. Perhaps there is a way to
retreive this info.

An interesting case is ballooning during migration. Is the new amount of
pages per domU actually transfered to the receiving domU? If the domU is
ballooned up the other side may see the incoming domU as over-allocated.
If it is ballooned down pages may be missing. Was this ever considered?
